The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, first published in 1904, is a classic children’s book written by Beatrix Potter. Beatrix Potter lived from 1866 to 1943 and is a well-known British icon. 

The Benjamin Bunny coin is part of the Beatrix Potter 50p coin collection by the Royal Mint which includes other coins such as the Beatrix Potter PortraitFlopsy Bunny and Mr Jeremy Fisher.  

The obverse of this coin was designed by Jody Clark, and the reverse by Emma Noble. Emma Noble, the designer behind all of the Beatrix Potter coins, portrays Benjamin iconically in his brown jacket.  The instantly recognisable design of not only this coin but all the Beatrix Potter coins makes them a highly collectible series.
